Ambrosia Parsley and Holly Miranda front porch concert – free!

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Our wonderful friends Holly Miranda and Ambrosia Parsley will be paying a visit to the Mystery Spot’s front porch this Sunday, July 21, at 3 PM to sing a few songs together. If you happened to be at Holly’s porch show a couple of years ago when Ambrosia joined her for a duet, you have an idea of how special an event this will be. Both Ambrosia and Holly will have new records coming out soon, and we can’t wait!

As always, this Music for Front Porches show on Main Street in Phoenicia is free, and everyone is invited. (Psst! We’re also having a 25% off record sale! Win/win!)

In the meantime, here are a few goodies for you: a photo of Ambrosia and Holly and a little friend from 2010, a link to their fantastic (and free to download) Mystery Spot Ditties that they wrote and sang especially for The Mystery Spot, and a video of their beautiful take on Buddy Holly’s True Love Ways.
